I voiced during the time of the preseason before Peyton had his last neck surgery that the Steelers would win no matter the quarterback. No matter if it was a rusty Manning(at the time didn't play a preseason game), Painter(inexperience), or Collins(doesn't know the playbook). The Steelers without a doubt will beat the Indianapolis Colts. For all of you who has Mendenhall, I suggest starting him on your fantasy football team. One of the worst rush defenses in the league vs a top 10 rusher last season. Go ahead and mark a loss on your schedule Indy for week 3. The game will be on NBC. It will probably be the least watched/lopsided victory of the season on NBC.
A message for Colt fans who are whining about Peyton not being there:
I can understand that you are upset about Peyton getting injured. I personally don't like it when players get injured myself. All that Indy fans will be missing this season is a good regular season record with a stat sheet. Peyton wouldn't have led the team to the Super Bowl that will be played in Lucas Oil Stadium this year. Colts playoff record wi/Manning isn't jaw dropping by any means. The Colts arn't the same team that went to the Super Bowl to face Saints. I doubt they will ever get back to that stage either with Peyton under center.
I want you fans to look at the bright side of things. You will be seeing a real football team in week 3 because they will be back there winning Super Bowl 46..........The Pittsburgh Steelers!!! Surprised??Don't be........STAY JEALOUS!!
